We have been in touch with many of you to advise the holidays in Scotland and the rest of the UK that we can safely run from mid-May onwards, whilst adhering to social distancing and hygiene restrictions and given the expectations for travel within UK. We know you can’t wait to join us, especially as more and more of you have also had your first and second vaccines, giving you even greater comfort. For those of you who haven’t yet heard from us, we are working through the holidays chronologically and will make sure that we’ve been in touch well before the start date for your trip.

Within the Cairngorms we shall be operating Day Guides from April, with the same socially distanced regime that we put in place for the autumn last year. We shall also open up our Evening Mammal Hide in May, again with the socially distanced settings that we instigated last year.

We shall continue to monitor the position with our Overseas holidays and are again extremely grateful for your patience and graciousness. We hope the position will become clearer once we have heard from the Travel Task Force in April, but are talking to our agents to cover all options. In the meantime, emails such as the one below are one of the many reasons why we know we’ll get through all this.

“Thank you very much for your email re: Hungary Summer 2021, I must admit I was a little concerned about putting the holiday forward again but after discussing it with Lyn we would very much like to accept your very generous offer to carry it forward to 2022. From when we first started holidaying with you in 2000 your company has grown to the well-respected company it is now and we have had some superb trips over the years. It is most unfortunate the pandemic has stopped us from enjoying wildlife as we knew it...Again thanks for your generous offer, yes, we will go for it.” Lyn and David.

Because of the transfers we made previously, we have secured additional dates for some of the holidays later in spring, so do take a look at the UK schedule for any remaining spaces that might give you that much-needed break that everyone is yearning for. We’ll continue to monitor the position for England and Scotland throughout the next few weeks and update you all as we go along chronologically. We shall also keep updating you about new and forthcoming holidays in our 2021 schedule through the enewsletter. If you would like to sign up for this please click here. If you have any immediate queries, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Thank you for continuing to do so by email, so that we can answer your queries as efficiently as possible. As always – stay safe.
